The Jibaab Story
How It All Started
In 2014, armed with not more than a few ideas, Saira Lakho, our founder, set out to design Abayas for her young daughter who wanted to look modest yet elegant.
What began as a simple home-based venture to cater to the needs of her teenage daughter, turned out to capture a vast market of women from all ages and walks of life. The unique and enthralling designs that Saira created grabbed everyone’s attention in no time.
With the support of her family, friends, and loved ones, Jilbaab held its first exhibition in 2014 and was a sold-out event. Our founder’s hard work and dedication paid off and there was no stopping now. From an exhibition of 30 abayas to hosting exhibitions of up to 300 extraordinary designs, Jilbaab grew to become a recognized brand.
Jilbaab's team has taken leaps after leaps towards success and gained appreciation and love from people becoming a favorite in modest clothing.
